what a difference a week makes...

last week
it was snowing
 i was out
 with
 the big camera
 (and the iPhone) 
snapping 
away 




this photo 
was shared last weekend on instagram
 it seemed appropriate
 to share it here
today
 on saturday
 since
 it features a dog

  it got
 selected
 highlighted
  by
 two groups
 made-in-my and ig_nycity

 i was really very excited about it 

i like to think
 i take a good photo
 photos that
 involve
 entertain
 occasionally
 tell a story
 so when a photo is singled
 out by peers
 its sort of 
well 
exciting
 makes me feel
 as if 
i really am good at it

 anyway 
enough of that
 my arm's getting tired from patting myself on the back 

this week
 its a lot warmer 

tomorrow
 its due to be in the mid 60s
 supposed to break a record
 i am sure
 there will be crazy people
 walking around
 in shorts
 without coats

 not me

 i am going to the eastside
 for my monthly massage
 if i see any short wearers
i will snap you a photo

  2. It's an awesome photo & worthy of all the pats on the back! I haven't been on instagram in so long, I think I've forgotten how to use it. :/

  4. Nicely done! It feels so good, doesn't it? I know that the few times someone has added one of my flickr photos to a group I felt really special. I know I'm in the business of selling images but it's so nice to have recognition, and your photos deserve it. X

  7. Good for you, getting the recognition on a great photo. Go ahead and pat yourself on the back a couple times for me, ok?

  8. I'll pat you on the back some more. You are really good at it.

    Can I put in an order. Female shorts wearers? Short skirts are nice also.

    Sorry for being such a perv.
